The Politics of The South African Run

By G R Berridge

Published by Oxford University Press

Berridge examines the ways in which Pretoria enlisted European shipping companies to service its national interests.

His fascinating account of how the South African government manipulated sailing rights and shipping services after World War II in order to draw in friendly countries such as Italy, Spain, and Greece sheds new light on South Africa's overall relationship with Western capitalism and its strategy in preparing for the possibility of economic sanctions.
